A slow-growing, dwarf, evergreen shrub with dense, glossy dark green foliage and a slightly weeping habit. Ideal for low maintenance low hedges, borders, rockeries and pots. Grows in full sun to part shade but may turn lime green/yellow in very strong sunlight. Tolerates a wide range of soils from mildly acidic to mildly alkaline (ie chalky) but needs good drainage. Requires minimal water once established and will tolerate dry conditions, but does prefer moist soils. Tolerates frost and heat. Prune lightly to maintain shape.
